Powered by LNG (liquefied natural gas), MSC Euribia has been designed with the future in mind, with this fuel claimed to be the cleanest and most efficient marine fuel currently commercially available at scale.
Renowned Danish television host, actress and model, Sarah Grünewald, presented the traditional maritime ceremony for MSC Cruises’ eagerly anticipated new eco-friendly flagship.
Godmother of MSC Cruises’ newest addition, Sophia Loren, was also in attendance to officially name the ship, continuing her long-standing close relationship with the cruise line.
Along with the important maritime tradition of cutting the ribbon to break a bottle of champagne over the ship’s bow, attendees were treated to a host of live entertainment and activities: including a gourmet gala dinner; guest speakers; and an unforgettable performance from internationally acclaimed DJ, Bob Sinclair.
“From October 2023 and throughout winter 2023/2024, the flagship will sail into Southampton, meeting the high demand for no-fly cruises after the success of MSC Virtuosa. MSC Euribia represents sophistication, innovation, state-of-the-art facilities, and impeccable service. We understand the discerning tastes and preferences of our UK & Irish customers, therefore we are confident that MSC Euribia will exceed their expectations and deliver an exceptional experience.”Antonio Paradiso, MSC Cruises UK & Ireland Managing Director
The special event gave guests an exclusive first look at Eurbia’s revolutionary cutting-edge design and environmental technology, including advanced onboard wastewater treatment systems and waste management handling.
Other ship highlights include the panoramic Carousel Lounge, 10 different dining venues (including five speciality restaurants), and Galleria Euribia- the longest LED Dome at sea, featuring an array of shops, eateries and entertainment.
MSC Euribia sets sail for her inaugural season in Northern Europe this summer, with itineraries including 7-night sailings from Kiel (Germany) and Copenhagen (Denmark) to the breathtaking Norwegian Fjords, including Geiranger, Ålesund, and Flaam.
From October 2023, Euribia will depart from Southampton in a series of no-fly sailings to idyllic winter destinations, including Amsterdam, Bruges and Paris.// END - About the Author ?>
